“We value the partnership we have with SATORP which has been built on KBR’s strong delivery track record,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Hydrocarbons – Energy Services.  “This award signifies SATORP’s trust in KBR to deliver this schedule critical project to support the upcoming major refinery turnaround in 2020.”

“It is our objective to not only deliver this project within schedule but also with Zero Harm to our people and the environment,” Ibrahim continued.

“We have been impressed with Wison’s experience in executing similar sized debottlenecking projects in KSA, which have all been completed ahead of schedule but more importantly safely, with zero lost time incidents,” said Ibrahim.
